engagement

shootstyle workshop, ogunquit, maine

so i went to this fabulous shootstyle workshop led by michelle turner, an amazing wedding photographer friend. check out the shootstyle site as they are a wonderful group of photographers that have a lot of knowledge to share. michelle was just great too, very open and sincere and just a lot of fun. not to mention her work rocks! i was very excited to get to spend time learning from her.

first off we heard from michelle about her posing styles and then we all went out with our models and took photos in various locations.

we had crazy high winds and it was very cold on the beach. we were all bundled up as photographers, but the poor models were freezing...they toughed it out and allowed us to get some great shots. a big thanks to everyone that was a part of this great day!!


here are a few of my favorites from that afternoon...

dom & selena engagement session

holy adorable couple batman! have i mentioned lately that i love my job? (:

we started at arabica...one of my favorite coffee shops. thank you for letting us hang out and take over your shop.

these two were so cute and such troopers...we were out in the old port on a day when it was 25 degrees, but felt colder to me! they were all love and happiness despite the cold. i can't wait to see them all dressed up on the wedding day.

amy & jarod

here are the latest engagement photos from good ol' downtown portland. that's one thing i love about this city...it may be small, but it is so visually interesting. i always find great backdrops. and as i always say "it never hurts to have beautiful people to photograph"! amy & jarod are just toooo cute. sorry guys. you are. can't wait till the wedding! they have the best spot on the water...right in the middle of downtown and the reception will be at rira the irish pub. such a great idea. and a thank you to vignola (amy says they have the best pizza in town) for letting us use your window seats for some photos!

kim & garrett, engagement shots

kim & garrett are getting married next may. the wedding will be in auburn, maine with the reception being outside at his parents home. i love weddings at the family home. it just makes the day that much more special...to be surrounded by all that is personal and close to the family is comforting. i am hoping their 3 dogs will be there as well. the told me they started with a little one, added a spaniel, and then adopted a dobermen. small, medium, and large! i can't wait for the wedding. until then....
